MileHiCon This Weekend—October 19-21

I've obviously been keeping a low profile of late, but I'll be stepping out to MileHiCon this weekend in Denver. Very much looking forward to seeing old friends, making new ones, all that jazz. Details on the con are here, but the broad strokes are that this year's Guests of Honor are Cherie Priest, C.J. Henderson, Stephen Hickman, and Stephen Brust, with Stephen Graham Jones serving as Toastmaster--should be a blast!

Here's where I'll officially be found, if I owe you money or something:

Friday, 08:00-09:00 PM: Serving as part of the "Meet, Munch, and Mingle" Autograph Alley session. I'll sign the remains of any foodstuffs that you let me get a bite of.

Saturday, 10:00-11:00 AM: I'll be doing a tag-team reading with Robert Ziegler, whom I've heard good things about. Haven't decided yet what I'll read--maybe I'll see if Ziegler would be willing to trade whatever he was planning on reading with me, so I can have him read something of mine and then snicker when he gets to the inevitable boners. Like Uncle Klaus, I am a simple man with simple pleasures.

Sunday, 01:00-02:00 PM: Moderating the obligatory "Comedic Elements in Horror" panel, which consists of the aforementioned Stephen Graham Jones, Molly Tanzer, Wayne Faust, and James K. Burk. Come and see us trot out old saws like the "clown at midnight" principle! As moderator, I can 100% guarantee that we'll be talking in part about our favorite film examples, so if you're a cinephile looking for obscure Halloween-season suggestions, this should be a fun time, especially when I call Molly out for not liking the Evil Dead movies in front of a room full of people who can--and likely would, if I had any intention of allowing audience commentary before the final ten minutes--quote Bruce Campbell verbatim, ad nauseam.

Other than that, the bar is always a good bet, and there are some good-looking panels and readings lined up, too, which I'll be sitting in on; the full schedule and guest list is at the site I mentioned above. If you're attending and reading this, it's a pretty safe bet that I'd like to meet you, shake your head, perform an interpretive dance for you, whatevs, so by all means come up to the rare Shorn Bullingtonbeast and introduce yourself. Huzzah!
